They’re not next door, but they’re still your neighbors.
Swinging a hammer is not a requirement for serving at Habitat for Humanity. We welcome people from all walks of life to join us in our mission to make affordable housing a reality for hard-working families in our community. Whatever your experience, stage of life, skill-set, or passion, there is a place for you here.

Earth Day Each year we celebrate Earth Day at the ReStore with special sales and a one-stop donation drop, where we partner with other area non-profits. The event takes place the Saturday after Earth Day. We can use help coordinating! Planning generally starts in February.
Breezy Point Annual Dinner/Auction The annual Dinner/Auction in Breezy Point is our largest fundraiser for the affiliate. We need help with planning from start to finish, including acquiring sponsors and auction items. The event generally takes place the 2nd week in June. The committee meets monthly starting in December.
Hubbard County Dinner/Auction The Annual “Homes for Hubbard County” Dinner/Auction is a great evening of fun held at Blueberry Pines in Menahga. The event generally takes place in the beginning of August and the committee meets monthly throughout the year. Everyone is invited to be a part of the planning from gathering sponsors and auction items, to setting up on the day of the event. Proceeds from this fundraiser help us build homes in the more challenging areas to serve in Hubbard County.
Site Blessings/Home Dedications Help us get the word out as we kick off a new build for a Site Blessing and again gather people when we complete the build for a Home Dedication.
Carry out the Board's vision by identifying families in need of decent, affordable housing. Develop the processes and policies for selecting those who best meet the criterion in the policies.
